Where to sow: Direct sow outdoors.
Preparation: Prepare the soil by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones.
Sowing: Sow March to June every 10 days for succession. Sow 5cm (2in) deep in flat-bottomed channels (drills) spacing about 2.5-5cm (1-2in) apart, and in rows 75cm (30in) apart.
Growing: When plants are 10cm (4in), tall provide twiggy sticks for support. The peas will be ready to harvest around 12-13 weeks from sowing date, and regular picking will encourage further cropping.
Support pea plants with twiggy sticks, wire or netting as they grow, and use fine netting to protect pea crops from birds and pea moth damage. When growing peas, regular and thorough watering especially when in flower will improve crop yields. Harvest peas around 14 weeks after sowing when the pods have swollen. Regular picking will encourage further cropping.
